On June 11th and 12th 2019 Celemi and Malaysian local partner Performance Development Consultants organized the Innovative Leadership Forum, a remarkable series of events on the topic of agility, cutting-edge leadership vision and digital transformation.

Over the 2 days, L&D and Training managers from Fortune 500 companies and Malaysian government agencies, together with C-suite managers from both Malaysian and Nordic companies, gathered in the Majestic Hotel in Kuala Lumpur for an interactive and insightful sharing session.

“More of Swedish innovation in Malaysia when Swedish company Celemi together with Malaysian partner PDC host roundtable forum in KL on Innovative Leadership in the Age of Digital Transformation. Celemi is leading provider of innovative gamification services & technologies in support of corporate learning & development. A pleasure to see Celemi engage in Malaysia.” –The Swedish Ambassador to Malaysia – H.E Dag Juhlin-Dannfelt

Ola Källqvist, CEO of Celemi APAC, spoke on the impact of Industry 4.0 on today’s businesses and the necessary steps to transition into this new era.  Azman Shah Dato’ Aziz,  CEO of Performance Development Consultants, then walked the excited audience through a teaser of Celemi Decision Base™.

“It was a very engaging program, full of learning outcomes that can be utilized in my industry. It was fun and I hope the program can be even longer in the future.” –Manager from Ambank

Azman also stressed the need for companies to focus not only on agile processes but also on recruiting and retaining an agile workforce to actualize agile company strategies.

On the second day, Business Sweden Country Manager Sara Hadin and the Swedish Ambassador to Malaysia H.E Dag Juhlin-Dannfelt also joined the forum, bringing their own unique perspective to the innovative leadership discourse.

During the multiple interactive sessions throughout the event, the engaged participants had the opportunity to reflect on their own companies’ current innovation status and share best practices on how to prepare their organization to thrive in the current Digital Transformation.

“The Simulation we played was very informative and exciting. It was very encouraging to see that PDC and Celemi made the effort to collaborate to run the event.” – Manager from Sapura Energy

After two days filled with interesting insights and exciting dialogue, we look forward to continuing the discussions on Innovative Leadership with our partners in APAC in years to come.
